Abstract:Aerovironmet Inc. proposes to undertake Phase I of DDARPA SBIR 962-080 to develop and assess operational utility of micro air vehicles (micro AV) for unique military applications. We will downselect from nine general categories of airframes, four general categories of propulsion systems to a… more
Abstract:The Skytote concept has emerged from a system analysis seeking a remotely/ autonomously controlled air vehicle for transporting materials -- a vehicle system that emphasizes simplicity, economy, and versatility. In one version it is envisioned as a ing less than 250… more
Abstract:AeroChem Corporation proposes to develop a new multi-luminophor pressure-sensitive paints (PSPs) suitable for full-field surface measure-ments over pressure and temperature ranges of 200 to 2000 psf and 20 to 150 F, respectively. These paints will allow simultaneous measure-ment of pressure and… more
Abstract:A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a… more
Abstract:Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for… more
Abstract:Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery… more

Abstract:A small number of conformal E-O sensors distributed over the surface of an aircraft can provide field of view coverage for Missile Warning, IRST and FLIR viewing. An innovative technique (Spatial Modulation) is used to allow a low density IR focal plane array to provide the necessary high… more
Abstract:Recent advancements in both computational efficiency and physical-modeling capabilities have increased the utility of computational fluid dynamics in the vehicle-design process. However, beyond knowing the aerodynamic characteristics of a fixed configuration, the vehicle designer is interested in… more

Abstract:One objective is to develop reliable ways and means other than parachutes/parawings to decelerate, descend and revover payloads lost during pre-orbit launch failures, improper orbit insertion and spacecraft operational failure in space, suborbital and near-space applications. Another objective is to… more
Abstract:Fastening and joining technology has lagged behind the progress that has been made in other areas of composites for advanced air vehicles. Aerotech proposes the development of reversible polymeric adhesive bonding of composites using variable frequency microwave energy. With this method,… more
Abstract:The US Army has identified the need for extending existing hetrojunction device physics models to a 3-D FPA process and device model. Specifically, this involves developing models for the operation and performance of double hetrojunction MCT photo-diodes devices. AET, Inc. proposes to use physics… more
Abstract:DARPA has identified a need for Engineering Decision Support computer tools for multi-disciplinary design teams involved in the specification, design and development of complex electro-mechanical products. During the product specification process, key decisions are made which define the product… more
Abstract:The United States Navy has identified the need to develop innovative technologies that reduce the costs of manufacturing weapon systems and components. This requires a commitment to using statistics and design of experiments (DoE) methodologies to fully understand and characterize manufacturing… more
Abstract:We propose a new model for testing Ada components which use aspects of artificial intelligence and software reliability engineering (specifically operational profiles). Our goal is to produce a tool that is capable of constructing operational profiles for both prior and new testing of an Ada… more
Abstract:Affinity proposes to establish a conceptual framework for the management and extraction and use of various ship engineering and design data that exist in large, heterogeneous, geographically separated databases. Affinity will base its analysis on its Object-Oriented, FusionWare infrastructure. … more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
